An Outline Buddhism (The Religion of Wisdom and Compassion)
An Outline Buddhism (The Religion of Wisdom and Compassion)
Description
Back of the Book

Since the dawn of time man has sought to define his status in the universe, to seek a path that explains the mysteries that surround this earthly life. But what has Buddhism to offer in the way of defining these conundrums?

What is the 'Middle Way' and what defines the 'Four Noble Truths'?

How can on define the 'Eighth Fold Path' and understand their concepts? What are the 'Three Characteristics' and what is meant by 'Karma' and 'Nirvana'?

In this small book by Shinkaku we have clear and concise answers to these simple but complex questions. With the information succinctly composed and laid out, no-one need ever to be concerned that they have failed to interpret the teachings of Lord Buddha.

Preface

Buddhism is considered to be more a philosophy than a religion, but what are its defining pillars or concepts? Often, with this blurring of religion and philosophy, when taken in the context of its origins, one is apt to be confused. Buddhism was born and evolved out of the ancient Indian scriptures that predate the Hindu traditions.

The Buddha was born and died a Hindu, but his teachings went a step beyond the ideals of the ancient Vedas. The pure form of Buddhism, which came from the Buddha, Siddhartha, has been considerably changed over the centuries. In this booklet the author clearly explains the basic tents of the pure Buddhism and its ideals.

Within the 'Four Noble Truths' and the 'Eight Fold Paths' are the main themes of Buddhism, and these are eloquently described. There are no gods or goddesses to consider, no prophet of the Lord to understand, and no worship of any deity or higher being to be performed. In Buddhism it is the 'way of living' that is foremost. It is the analysis and deep insight on a mental plane that is needed to understand the true nature of all things, to encompass all paths.

This book is presented to help you discover and understand for yourself more about Buddhism, to realize and appreciate a different philosophy for living.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
